Detailed Analysis of Donor-Recipient Tissue Mismatch May Help Personalize Treatment After Transplantation

• A molecular analysis of the mismatch between the tissues of donors and recipients helped predict which recipients required high doses of immune modulating drugs and which needed only low doses.

New Way to Enlarge Tissues Gives Pathologists a Closer Look at Cells

Investigators from Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have developed and tested an innovative, reliable means of analyzing pre-cancerous breast lesions diagnosing certain kidney diseases and using only a conventional light microscope. The technique – dubbed “expansion pathology or ExPath – enhances pathologists’ diagnostic ability and could mean earlier interventions for high-risk patients. The research team describes their joint effort in a paper published today in the journal Nature Biotechnology.

Aerobic Exercise Found Safe for Non-Dialysis Kidney Disease Patients

A new study finds that moderate exercise does not impair kidney function in some people with chronic kidney disease (CKD). The study—the first to analyze the effects of exercise on kidney disease that does not require dialysis—is published ahead of print in the American Journal of Physiology—Renal Physiology.
